About this book

Nature awaits discovery at almost every turn in the complex ecosystem of Washington, D.C. In parks large and small, within the District's gardens, and on public streets, there is tremendous biodiversity. In Field Guide to the Natural World of Washington, D.C., naturalist Howard Youth takes us on an urban safari, describing the wild side of the nation's capital. Beyond the abundant wildlife one can find in every neighborhood, Washington boasts a large park network rich in natural wonders. A hike along the trails of Rock Creek Park, one of the country's largest and oldest urban forests, quickly reveals white-tailed deer, eastern gray squirrels, and little brown bats. Mayapples, Virginia bluebells, and red mulberry trees are but a few of the treasures found growing at the National Arboretum. A stroll along the Potomac and Anacostia Rivers might reveal stealthy denizens such as bullfrogs, largemouth bass, and common snapping turtles.

Detailed drawings by Carnegie artist Mark A. Klingler and photography by Robert E. Mumford, Jr., reveal the rich color and stunning beauty of the flora and fauna awaiting every D.C. naturalist. Whether seeking a secluded jog or an adventurous outing, residents and tourists alike will find this handsome guide indispensable for finding oases away from the noise of the city and for interpreting the plants and animals that appear along the way.

Media reviews

"Visiting birders would do well to carry [Field Guide to the Natural World of Washington, D.C.]."
BirdWatching

"The book is simply an amazingly informative work of art [...] if you're visiting D.C., by boat preferably, this guide is great to bring along."
– Chris Knauss – The Star Democrat

"To most people, the only animals in Washington D.C. are political animals, but how wrong they are [...] If you love Washington D.C., nature, or even have a healthy curiosity of the natural world, this guide is for you."
– Scott R. DiMarco – American Reference Books Annual

"Downtown sightings of such wild creatures as snowy owls, peregrine falcons, and vultures may generate media attention, but after perusing Howard Youth's Field Guide to the Natural World of Washington, D.C., I don't find these episodes as outlandish as the headlines might suggest [...] The guide represents a considerable documentation of the species that share our corner of the world."
– Adrian Higgins – Washington Post
